Error "Cannot read the plan"



Hello colleagues! How are you?

Has this ever happened to you? How did you resolve it?

The original file opens for me and remains blank automatically. So, I searched for backups and converted them to PLN. I can open backups from other projects without any issues, but I'm encountering the attached error with this particular project.

Another thing to consider is that this file is located on the desktop of my notebook; I don't work with external drives. I have 330 GB available on my notebook, and power outages are not a problem for me as my battery works quite well, and I have room to save files. I also have antivirus software installed.

Most of the references I find suggest that the file is unrecoverable.

not wanting to state the obvious, this is why you need a robust backup solution where you have at least three (3) copies of everything with at least one copy in a remote location.

1 version is the active version you are working on (on your PC or server)

1 version is on a separate backup drive (not a second drive in your PC or server)

1 version is on a separate backup drive / cloud service in a remote location.
